A HUGE event to help drive east London businesses out of the economic gloom will feature dozens of exhibitors, free seminars and advice and information on financial services.

The first annual Expo event, sponsored by Archant London – publishers of this newspaper – on October 19 is not to be missed, said Jamie Banks, chairman of the organising committee, as it targets the needs of the 30,000-strong business community.

He is expecting to welcome hundreds business owners and managers to the Sanofi-Anentris plant in Rainham Road South, Dagenham, for the fair.

They will find a free “meet the buyer” event to help small and medium-size companies, and seminars covering topics such as internet strategy and employment law, and an evening networking event. And they are all free.
